Network Environments

Using MxManagementCenter, you can access cameras from different locations. For example, you can monitor the cameras at home over the local area network (LAN) or while on the move via a preconfigured DynDNS access over the Internet. These two methods require the use of different network access data. To avoid having to change the network access data every time, you can set up different network environments for the corresponding network access data in MxManagementCenter. Switching to a different environment causes the network address data for connecting to the cameras to be switched automatically.
